This post from my friend explains a VERY important skill for all of us! “GROUNDING” was one of the first meditation/energy body exercises I learned. Through the simple techniques Amanda explains, you create a sort of lightning rod protection for yourself.
You can also try my Grounding Yoga & Meditation Audio Class/Podcast here.
In architecture, “if lightning hits the building it will…strike the rod and be conducted to ground through the wire, instead of passing through the building, where it could start a fire or cause electrocution. (wikipedia)” By practicing grounding, when “lightning strikes” (someone yells at you, you stub your toe, get bad news, have too much coffee etc.) you let the earth take the energy, instead of letting it jam around in your body-temple. Happy Grounding!
